|Upper West Bolton
Up the face to five bolts and the anchor.
On the left most wall at Upper West there are two climbs on the short wall. This one is the right of the two.

Climbed this after work today and found a hornets nest in the pocket to the left of the LO. Beware as you can't see it from below and they get angry if you tickle their nest.
The new guidebook calls this a 5.10c, which I think is fair. But it may have been the hornets that made it seem harder than it is.

Glad I exited to the last bolt and anchors of the route to the left. I'm allergic to hornet stings! I was just perturbed at the guidebook saying to use the arete which seemed like really bad beta as I clung there forever trying to figure out why the last bolt was so far away from the arete and so much farther away from the anchors than I wanted it to be.
